The world is full of people who are searching for the "perfect" partner. Although sometimes what's right for you is not perfect, dating someone who complements you is dating someone you can grow with. Here are the 10 best things about dating someone who complements you.

1. You both get the experience new things

If you're an introvert dating an extrovert, I'm sure there have been times where you've done things you never thought you'd do, but you've loved doing them. Same goes for extroverts dating introverts. You're both pushed into doing things that help you discover more of yourself and your likes. Plus who better to experience new things with than your partner?

2. You get each other’s humor

Hopefully, in the relationship you're in, you get a spark of humor. Dating someone with the same style of humor can definitely make anyone's life better. You understand the boundaries of the jokes and you know how to make each other laugh. One joke turns into several because the humor flows from both ends.

3. You bring out the best in each other

If you complement each other, you know how to get the other person to do their best by allowing them to bring things to the table that you can help build up. Making their weaknesses stronger as they also do for you.

4. Problem solving is easier

Problems are not always clear cut on how they should be fixed, but the way you and your partner work makes you tackle problems better than before. Two minds alternating ideas and solutions to things is what brings you success.

5. Your relationship doesn’t feel forced

You don't find yourself tossing and turning at night wondering if you're in the relationship that's right for you because it just feels right. You complement each other so well, there's no real doubt in your mind. Your relationship flows naturally and it keeps getting better by the effort you put in that doesn't feel overwhelming.

6. Balance is brought by being together

When you are in a relationship with someone that complements you, you find balance in many aspects of your life. Your strengths will not be the same as your partners; therefore if you put in work to figuring out a good balance between the two of you, it will reflect on other parts of your life and not just your relationship.

7. Your separate goals complement each other

Even with the most simplest goal or the most difficult one, your goals seem to fall into place. They might be different but there is a way for both of your goals to be accomplished and you always end up figuring it out.

8. Help each other process thoughts

At times you may find yourself at loss of words. It's like you have so much to say but not a sure way of saying it. With dating someone that complements you, sometimes you don't need to stress about trying to figure out what to say, because they know what you are thinking. They know what formula to give you so that you can express yourself the way you feel is best to.

9. You understand each other's imperfections

When going into a relationship, it is important to remember that no one is perfect. There are things that you can help your partner better and they can help you better if you guys complement each other.

10. Team work makes the dream work

You have your qualities and they have theirs, but together you make something greater. You are not perfect but you're just right for each other. Taking on everyday helping each other out and sharing a beautiful thing called love.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
